Vision & Objectives

  • In our project we want to find a mechanical, chemical free way, through which we can successfully and sustainably grow phacelia.


  • In the member farms phacelia is planted every year during the 3 year period of the project and we examine if it is possible to grow it without the use of herbicides. We use mechanical methods such as harrowing and the weed flora is every year examined.

Production sector

  • Arable farming
